In the C++ version of the lock/logout applet, there was an alternative layout that made icons vertical, thus making them smaller and more fit for panels. With the QML version, this is no longer possible, and as result icons can take up quite a lot of space in a panel, especially if adding many buttons (see attached screenshot).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add Lock/Logout applet to panel
There is no way to stack the buttons vertically like in the C++ applet.
The same layout options should be offered in the QML version.
From today's git master.

Which exact KDE version is this about?

Git master for everything + latest 4.8 branch for kdelibs.
Thank you for the fast feedback.
Confirmed here for 4.8b1. The funny thing is, the orientation changes as a desktop applet automatically, depending on the aspect ratio of the applet. In the panel, that does not happen. Marking as regression.
The icons are always laid out in the same direction as the panel. I have a vertical panel and would love to see them laid out horizontally...
I confirm for 4.9b1.
It's only a niggle and personal preference, but I'd rather not use the applet than have the applet taking up so much space in the panel.
